tellme - text-to-speech command execution notifier
tellme runs the command and notify the user through text-to-speech when the process finishes.
tellme sudo yum update
will eventually say "finished yum update successfully". Yes, it's smart enough to strip the sudo out. Some configuration options are available, see the example configuration file. With that file,
cd myproject tellme make install
will eventually say "finished myproject make install successfully".
autoreconf -ivf ./configure --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
festival is currently hardcoded as the text-to-speech engine.
